Mint Choc Protein Balls

I wanted to create something a bit different that used some fresh herbs from my garden, was high in protein so it doesn’t spike your blood sugar level and is totally delicious. Here is the result. They’re quick and easy to make (great to do with the children), are gluten & dairy free and vegan […]

Basic Tomato Sauce

I use this tomato sauce for a wide variety of things such as a base for mince dishes or a sauce for meatballs or mini burgers or pasta. It’s quick and simple to make and easy to add extra veggies to. If you want really disguise veggies you can blitz once ready to incorporate everything. […]

Sugar Free Cinnamon Stars (Zimtsterne)

Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Stars), are a favourite gluten and dairy free treat at this time of the year in Germany. Unfortunately, whilst they are delicious they are very high in sugar. As part of the work I do at the Alliance for Natural Health we decided to do an experiment recently to see how the addition of […]

Coconut Pancakes

Super quick, easy to make (only two ingredients) and totally delicious. I serve these with stewed apples (with raisins & cinnamon), some sunflower & pumpkin seeds and topped with coconut cream.

Apricot, Cashew & Coconut Balls

These 3 ingredient Apricot, Cashew & Coconut bliss balls are simple to make and taste great.  Apricots are an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of pro-vitamin A carotenoids), and a good source of vitamin C, copper, dietary fibre, and potassium, Cashews give a dash of protein and good fats, whilst the Coconut adds […]
